This article is targeted to identify “cause and fix” for “sound problems” in Windows-based PC. If you are unable to play blockbusters or getting at all no sound from your speakers or headphones then probably you have landed to a right page.

First approach should be to understand what causes the sound problems. Well, for starter, there are two reasons, one is physical and other is background or virtual in nature. Former can be checked by unplugging or plugging back cables. While the latter needs a comprehensive approach, the proceedings could be long or short depending upon the nature of origin of problem. You may get a fix by just restarting your machine or by changing the settings of the sound volume available at the system tray. Performing a System Restore can be a magic. It will be restoring the software and driver settings to a previous know good configuration. Just follow the onscreen prompts in the System Restore Wizard to see if that fixes computer’s sound problem. Computer viruses can also be on the background, which often remains unnoticed. If your system is suspected to have the infection, then run the scan using the installed security software. Microsoft Security Essentials is an alternative.

However, you may need to go beyond, and check the Device Manager to trace any software or driver conflicts if the issues persist still. Analyzing the panel settings will conform whether the problem is rooted in incompatibility or conflicts. Windows Update is a reliable tool; it brings solution or desired driver update for your machine. Navigating the manufacturer’s website is the next option. Explore the “MSConfig” panel to check whether there is some Windows Audio settings issues; proceed as “Start”, “Run” and type "msconfig" into the text box, and then click "OK." This starts the System Configuration Utility. Here you get four tabs including General, Boot, Services, Tools and Startup. Click "Services." If the Hide All Microsoft Services box is checked, uncheck it. Scroll down the menu and click the "Windows Audio" section. Check the box to the left of "Windows Audio" to set it to start when Windows does. Click "OK" to close the System Configuration Utility and save your changes. Now, restart your machine to make changes effective.

Being a novice, you can start with the Windows built-in troubleshooter i.e. Microsoft Fix it. The automated tool does a thorough diagnosis to detect the problem and offers one-click fix. However, if you are unable to get the desired result than either contact your PC vendor (Provision of hardware replacement is there, though rarely, if your machine is within the warranty period), or contact online computer technical support portal to resolve software related issues. Experts can remotely assess the status of the audio driver, and can recommend steps to resolve sound issues. Getting difficulties? Probably, it happens, but remote PC Help is built for you. Let technicians take the remote access of your system, and perform troubleshooting on your behalf. They can reinstall or update drivers and setup Windows Audio and sound settings to let you go smooth with your favorite playlists.
